FRANCE – Holiday Inn CDG Paris, a perfect place for night at the airport

France - Hotel - Holiday Inn CDG Airport Review

Sometimes it is needed to stay a night at the airport and a good hotel makes this much more comfortable. This happens for example if you route to your destination in a non-efficient but cheaper way like I explained in my tips to fly business cheaper. At Charles de Gaulle (CDG) airport in France I stayed at the Holiday Inn Hotel which is very convenient and preferred. My experience I will share with you!

The hotel

The hotel is located in Roissy-en-France which is about 15 minutes by bus from CDG airport. There is a free shuttle bus (black line) which runs every 20 minutes between the airport and the hotel. The area is quiet and the center of the small town is at walking distance. I entered the hotel and got a warm welcome and a quick check-in. The lobby and other common areas are modern and comfortable.

The rooms at Holiday Inn CDG Paris Airport

I was surprised by the rooms compared to other experiences at airport hotels. They are spacious, modern and clean and everything you need is available. They are perfect to work and to spend a night. You can choose the soft or firm pillows to have a long sleep in the comfortable bed. The bathroom has all the amenities you need with a nice rainforest shower which for me is a big plus.

The hotel has a mini gym in case you want to do some exercise during your stay. Just 100 meters from the hotel you find a nice park for an evening or morning stroll to stretch your legs after a long flight. It’s everything you need during an airport stay.

Dining & Drinking at Holiday Inn CDG

If I travel and I use a hotel for a night between flights I like it if they have a good restaurant and a bar. The Holiday Inn CDG has a nice lobby bar for a drink in the evening. I had dinner in the restaurant with a great crab meat dish as starter and steak tartare, my favorite, as main course. Of course every course with a tasty French wine. Room service is also great where I had some healthy fruits after all the airline food I had and would have the days after. Breakfast has many choices but is a bit hasty with all the people wanting to catch a plane.

Traveling cheap(er) as I wrote before sometimes requires you to stay overnight at an airport. At Charles de Gaulle CDG airport I can recommend to stay at the Holiday Inn Hotel with its free shuttle to the airport. Spacious modern rooms welcome you to sleep and work. Good food and a nice area make it all complete. If you have more time you could even take a shuttle downtown Paris for a few hours. I highly recommend Holiday Inn Hotel at CDG airport!

  1. Do they permit 4 to a room? Can you get rollaway or pullout couch? More economical for families if you aren’t forced to buy two rooms

  2. Hi

    I loved this post! I spent 12 years in the hospitality industry and now more recently in Travel and Tourism. So this post was the PERFECT read for me.

    I have to agree I LOVE Rain Forest Showers, they can make any hotel room experience feel all that more luxurious! I am also VERY impressed by the quality of rooms in the Holiday Inn Hotels. This is the 3rd inside room look I have had of a Holiday Inn Room and again it is more than expected.

    I stayed in the one in Dubai near Al Basha and the one in Down Town Dubai near the Station. Both were beyond expectations in quality, food and lay out 🙂 Very impressive.

    I love that there is a park just down the road and bus line running from hotel to airport which makes timing so much easier and you get to explore a little of somewhere you wouldn’t of usually had the option too see.

    I look forward to reading more of your posts!
    Thanks again
